Writer's Shed

More than £500

WSD were commissioned by an author and childrens book illustrator to design and build a working space for him at the end of his garden.

We created a space that satisfied all the clients functional needs on the inside, while reflecting some aspects of the authors work on the outside. The project took the form of a fairy-tale hut at the bottom of his garden.

The project used a offset pitch roof, with a north facing skylight for even daylight over the illustration desk. We made use of the main gable-end wall by installing bespoke shelving that playfully cuts in and out around the wood burning stove.

We used a material palette that reflected sheddiness of the project, using inexpensive OSB and pine T&G on the interior, with cedar shingles and coppices on the exterior. The materials were resilient and un-fussy, complementing the role of the shed as a place of changing ideas and production.

The Writers Shed was shortlisted for the Architects Journal Small Projects award 2014.
